Please note the BOTM Rules here:
http://www.vbulletin.org/forum/info.php?do=botm (http://www.vbulletin.org/forum/info.php?do=botm)

The rules for this thread:
Only post nominations or seconds, no chatter.
All seconds are to be placed in 1 post, with a max of 3.
All seconds should include the word "second" or "+1".
All posts must be in English.Please abide by these rules or your post will be removed.

Nominations will be accepted until the last day of April 2013 (Close to midnight- maybe a few hours earlier, maybe a few hours later. There is no exact time.)

When nominating please post the site name, URL to the forum, a short description what makes your board stand out from default vBulletin, and a reason for nomination that will motivate others to second the nomination. If the staff feels that a nomination post is too promotional it will be edited accordingly.

Any sites without a name, URL, description and reason for nomination will NOT be entered into the poll. Please ensure that your nomination is in the format:

URL: http://www.vbulletin.org (http://www.vbulletin.org/) - this must be clickable and a real URL (One link only.)
Description: Official vBulletin Modifications Site
Reason for Nomination: Not Nominated. This is an example nomination.
DO NOT STRAY FROM THE ABOVE FORMAT. Save your creativity for your FORUM- this is not the place for it.

When seconding sites, please ensure that you use the same post for the maximum of 3 allowed seconds. Any seconds not located in your first seconding post will not be counted. Please also ensure that you quote the nomination post you are seconding in your post (Use Multi-Quote Option if you are nomination multiple boards). If there is no name or URL provided then the post will be ignored when the nominations are counted.

Also, please make sure that you are seconding a forum that has already been nominated by its forum owner. Any seconds for a forum that has not been nominated yet will be counted as null and void.

You MUST enter the URL to your forum in the "URL:" line. DO NOT put a link with your site's name. Your entry will be rejected. Only 1 link is allowed.

You MUST put all your seconds in ONE post. If that means editing your original post to add more seconds, then DO it. We throw out seconds that are made in multiple posts.

Please post only nominations or seconds, NO "Thank you" posts are needed, they clutter the thread and will be DELETED.

IMPORTANT inquiries regarding the BOTM Contests should be sent via PM to Roms, BirdOPrey5, or an Administrator.
